I was writing a western, in which these creatures were swooping from the sky, attacking, and, as it so happened, they turned out to be vampires with pale lavender skin, and jaundiced, yellow, eyes. As the story began to unfold, there was also a shape-shifter, or werewolf, I never quite got

Writing, Reading Saint Joan, Other Things

After having taken about a month off from writing, I’m writing again. I won’t say what or whats just yet. My former policy, of many years, of ever, was that I did not discuss what I was writing while I was writing it and that really works better for me. It also works out better for those times when you

Chapter Thirty-Two Talessia grabbed a cup of coffee at the little service station two miles up the road from the motel and buttoned her blouse straight.

The Slick Furies.

I’m super tired. Is that the best time to write a blog post? Hopefully this won’t be too rambling. I have surpassed the sixty thousand word mark on the edits/re-write of the vampire novel. I have approximately sixty-six pages of the original text, about twenty thousand words, to finish, knowing that I’ll likely add a chapter or two. I’m right
